David has been pestering me for a couple of years to post some thing so here it is. First of all those interested in the motor GP will normally find David and myself watching it at the Cornish arms Soi 9 Moon Muang when its on, the previous owner Steve was right into his bike racing so we are keeping to tradition and staying at this location but if this doesnt work out you will probably find us back at the U.N Irish pub. Recently did the Nan Doi Phuka ride, enjoyed it so much I went home and two days later went and did it again. By far it would have to be one of the best road rides In the North, great roads, spectacular views. The only down side to the second ride was following a very adventurous Japanese with a G.P.S, not a problem for my 1100 Shadow which has a bit of ground clearance but the two guys on the Harleys got a little anxy when they started dropping their over rated machines in foot deep talcum powder type dust. Some may recall 2 years ago David and I attempted and succesfully completed the Mae Hong Song loop in a day on honda dreams (dont ask why) but I would like to do it again with David and some others with plenty of time on thier hands, not reccomended for the faint hearted because you do have to set a decent pace to achieve your goal, but I feel this event should take its place as an annual social event on the Chiangmai calender.
